The Bottom Line A change in sensor brings the 30x zoom Canon PowerShot SX510 HS' photo and movie quality as well as its shooting performance up a notch. For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot. If you simply must have the longest zoom in the room, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS satisfies.
